How to build a strong self-image?
Most people without self-evidence do not have the skills or techniques of building a strong and healthy self-image. Self-image helps you achieve what you want. If you lack it, you will not be able to achieve the desired goals.
Also, you will not be able to play the game of life well because it follows strict rules most of which you acquire through experience and not being taught anywhere in the classrooms.
The following are the major strategies in which you can build self-confidence.
Take full responsibility for your life
Taking full responsibility for your life does not mean accepting responsibility for mistakes without fault.
Taking responsibility mean that you accept the good and bad things associated with you. It means being a product of your personality or anything you are associated with.
Make the right choices
The way you make your choice determines whether you will achieve the set goals or not.
Take for example if you want to lose weight. What you day every day and every minute will determine whether you will lose or gain weight.
You have to exercise, take the recommended meals and avoid those which lead to the increase in weight. The choice of what you do every day will determine your destiny.
Move past the comfort zones
To get something good and desirable you must work hard and there is no exception to this rule.
You reap the fruits of whatever you have planted. If you want to live comfortably and relax then it will take you longer to achieve your dreams. If you work past the zones of comfort and engage in strenuous activities then you will, without a doubt, realize that which you want.
Prepare for the success
If you do not prepare for the way to react, live or behave you will be full of anxiety when you achieve whatever you want. After you become self-confident, control and manage it to ensure that you do not become over confident.
How to be successful? The secrets of success
In the world of today, you have to be ambitious so as to get ahead faster. If you are successful, most people will like to follow your footsteps.
Nobody would like to be associated with failed people or those who cannot bring forward any positive change. Everyone wants to be successful but is there a formula or secret for success?
Different people propose different formulas for success but all can be summarized to:
Write down the goals of that which you want to do or undertake
You need to outline the pitfalls which lie on the way towards achieving your goal and how you should go about them.
There will always be a gap between where you are and the goal. You are the one to lay the bridge to achieving that goal that bridge is self-confidence, positive self-esteem and high self-efficacy.
Lay down the plans of achieving them
As stated above, you are likely to encounter some challenges as you move towards attaining your goal. One way of succeeding life is preparing for the future. Write down what you should do in order to attain your goals.
Work on those plans daily
After you are through with the above three steps, now you have to put your brain and body to work. You will at times be required to go against the wills of your body. You may even be required to change your lifestyle. All successful men and women are hard working.
With this, you have to work to get the good things; the bad things will just come. Hard work, dedication, and determination pay. It is what brings the difference in people’s lives. Work hard till you achieve you achieve what you want.
This three point action plan has brought positive change to the lives of many people it will also bring change to yours. Always remember that you time on anything including living on the earth is limited.
YOU MUST HAVE GOALS
You have to be doing something, including thinking all the time to achieve something.
Success and Slow Start: The Relationship
The reason why most people fail is that they want to begin at the high point. You must begin somewhere and then progress to the next higher step till you reach the highest.
Some of the largest and most profitable companies began as a small shop or business. What you need are vision and goals.
Some of the most success full people are not those are the sharpest and most clever. How you think and behave has an impact on whatever you will be successful.
If you want to be successful, be ready to begin from low and then go upwards without sliding backward. To move forward you must have confidence in that which you do.
Never despair or believe that all is lost. For a person with vision and goals, it is never too late. This does not mean that you should not act early and in time. You should be vigilant to make use of any chance or opportunity which may arise.
The world presents everyone with an opportunity to succeed at some point in life if you utilize that chance, your life will change and it will never be the same again.
Do not assume that what you are doing now or that the state you are in at the moment is permanent. This world keeps on changing.
Today you are of good health, tomorrow you are sick. Today you are poor, tomorrow you are rich. Today you are employed; tomorrow you use your job. Do not take tomorrow to mean the following day. It could mean next year, next decade or several years to come. The world is very certain.
You need to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Do not always assume that everything will go on planned or as expected. You need to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. As stated earlier, you need to prepare for the success as well as failure.
The concept of ‘unknown tomorrow’ in life is what makes people work hard and lay down strategies for anything which may happen.
This is the reason why countries spend portions of their GDPs and national incomes to maintain the military even when it is not under threat of attack or war. Likewise, be prepared for the future regardless of whether you are in a good or bad situation at the moment.
How to unlock your potential?
As Brian Tracy once put it
“The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good.”
The secret of success is not secret at all, it is setting goals. All the others are jut comments men and women work hard to achieve their set goals within a certain period of time.
Any activity without goals is as good as lost. If you have goals, you will always be working on how to achieve those goals even when asleep.
To set goals, you must have the capability and knowledge to set them. All goals are not workable. Do not set goals which are too easy, too hard or impossible to achieve.
The goal targets should make you active and put you to work. Without goals, you will fly like a light paper in times of strong wind.
Because of the light weight, the paper is taken in all directions by the strength of the wind. The goals will make you proceed with life with the sharpness of an arrow.
An arrow goes towards the direction in which it has been directed. It will act on anything it comes across.
Goals are a source and avenue of self-confidence
Self-confidence and goals are synonymous when you want to realize your full potential in whatever you want to do. You will have self-confidence if you have a clear and concrete plan of action.
Some people assume that planning is only necessary for those who are in positions of authority or management or those who are rich.
You have an obligation to manage your life in order to progress from step one to the next and ultimately to where you want. Success and good things are admired by everyone.
The strategies you put in place to achieve your goals is what brings in the difference.
Self-improvement & Success – Hand in Hand
Everything that happens to us happens in purpose. And sometimes, one thing leads to another.
Instead of locking yourself up in your cage of fears and crying over past heartaches, embarrassment and failures treat them as your teachers and they will become your tools in both self-improvement and success.
So, when does self-improvement become synonymous with success? Where do we start? Take these tips:
Stop thinking and feeling as if you’re a failure, because you’re not. How can others accept you if YOU can’t accept YOU?
When you see hunks and models on TV, think more on self-improvement, not self-pitying. Self-acceptance is not just about having nice slender legs or great abs. Concentrate on inner beauty.
When people feel so down and low about themselves, help them move up. Don’t go down with them. They’ll pull you down further and both of you will end up feeling inferior.
The world is a large room for lessons, not mistakes. Don’t feel stupid and doomed forever just because you failed on a science quiz. There’s always a next time. Make rooms for self-improvement.
Take things one at a time. You don’t expect black sheep’s to be goody-two-shoes in just a snap of a finger. Self-improvement is a one day at a time process.
Self-improvement results to inner stability, personality development and SUCCESS. It comes from self-confidence, self-appreciation, and self-esteem.
Set meaningful and achievable goals. Self-improvement doesn’t turn you to be the exact replica of Cameron Diaz or Ralph Fiennes. It hopes and aims to result in an improved and better YOU.
Little things mean BIG to other people. Sometimes, we don’t realize that the little things that we do like a pat on the back, saying “hi” or “hello”, greeting someone “good day” or telling Mr. Smith something like “hey, I love your tie!” are simple things that mean so much to other people.
When we’re being appreciative about beautiful things around us and other people, we also become beautiful to them.
When you’re willing to accept change and go through the process of self-improvement, it doesn’t mean that everyone else is.
The world is a place where people of different values and attitude hang out. Sometimes, even if you think you and your best friend always like to do the same thing together at the same time, she would most likely decline an invitation for self-improvement.
Always remember that there’s no such thing as ‘overnight success’. It’s always a wonderful feeling to hold on to the things that you already have now, realizing that those are just one of the things you once wished for.
A very nice quote says that, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” We are all here to learn our lessons.
When you open your doors for self-improvement, you increase your chances to head to the road of success.
